Second Hand Rose "Crossing Boundaries" World Tour
China's biggest and boldest rock band Second Hand Rose will launch their upcoming "Crossing Boundaries" World Tour as a continuation of their journey to the West that started with their 2014 American debut at New York Modern Sky Music Festival in Central Park and "Useless Rock USA" tour. The band will travel to five cities, in three countries, and two continents, including show presented by BACMA (San Francisco), Harbourfront Center (Toronto), Berklee College of Music's The Red Room @ Cafe 939, New Island Entertainment (NYC) and Paleo Festival Nyon 2015 (Switzerland).
Iron Kite Joins MusicDish*China Roster
We're pleased to announce the signing of our Beijing-based alternative metal rock band Iron Kite (铁风筝) for worldwide representation. Formed in the 90's in Beijing, the band is one of the pioneers of China's independent rock movement. They successful combine Chinese with western rock music, using their eastern aesthetic to reimagine rock music. They are presently in Los Angeles working with ArtiSans Label music producer Barrett Slagle on their long-awaited album to be release late this summer, followed by a fall tour.
MusicDish*China @ NYCxDesign
From the time I started working on China, I saw more than an emerging independent music scene, but a broader cultural movement I've come to call Yaogun Wenhua (Chinese Rock Culture). In short, Yaogun Wenhua is to China's indie scene what hip hop is to rap - a broader cultural attitude and movement shaping other creative sectors such as art, fashion,... We made our first foray beyond music by hosting an official NYCxDesign event with Avent Studio called "The New Wave Of Chinese Contemporary Art: Identity, Irreverence And Forward-Looking." Follow our MusicDish*China Facebook group for pics of the event.
Planetrox China Final 2015 - 13 June 2015
We're proud to be supporting Planetrox China 2015 competition. Four Hong Kong bands and one Shanghai band will battle for the chance to represent China at September's Envol et Macadam alternative music festival in Quebec, Canada without paying a single penny for their flight tickets and accommodation! The Grand Finale will be held on 13th June 2015 (Saturday) at Hong Kong's Orange Peel in Central.
